Not nearly enough room on the MLB & AAA rosters for all these guys.

I'm hopeful that the pure volume of arms to choose from will(at the very least) provide options to turn to.
Our Twins will be improved if we can simply avoid handing multiple starts to pitchers who are tossing 6 plus ERA's like we did last year.
If someone is not performing or injured. Hopefully we have the next guy to turn to.

Baker will be exactly 12 months removed from Tommy John surgery for the start of the season, so there's a chance he won't miss any time if he can avoid setbacks. More likely, the 31-year-old right-hander will begin the season on the disabled list to continue to build up his workload. Baker, who signed a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Cubs in November, is expected to be up to 75 pitches by the end of spring training.

The Red Sox originally signed Napoli to a three-year, $39 million contract earlier in the offseason, but talks hit a snag after an issue with one of his hips was reportedly found during a pre-signing physical. The injury is not expected to keep him from being ready for Opening Day, so it's surprising that Napoli wasn't able to do better in free agency. He'll now look to re-establish his value on a one-year pact. If healthy, Napoli should remain a decent fantasy option throughout 2013 as Boston's everyday first baseman.
